    I hope so it. It's a BRZ and has paper-thin body panels. Thanks.

    Taco is due for some brakes in the next 5-7k miles, what's the general consensus? Previous vehicles be always switched to EBC, anyone have any experience with them?

    I thought about it but it was an extra $10 a day. I may next time though, the extra reassurance might be worth it.

    Go to Canopy Parking, tell them you have a E-470 pass and you pay almost the same for covered as you would for open :thumbsup:

    But I don't, will they ask for proof?
    I live in Pueblo so I don't use the toll often but I do go to DIA from time to time. I usually go the long way.

    I've never been asked to show proof, I just flash them the coupon on the website and they discount it, I doubt the person making 9.25 at the window cares lol

    I am planning to mount my fridge in the bed via a slide. The slide I bought fits flush to the bed and could use half an inch or more below it to raise it off the surface. I also got a large piece of building matrial that I could potentially make a wooden floor for the bed, a platform for the slide or a drawer possibly. What does everyone reccomend? Is your slide direct to the bed or does it have feet or a platform? My drawer would only fit the Coleman stove not much else as I don't want it too high hitting the camper windoor. A platform is the minimum I need I think but maybe some storage below would be nice

    Interesting. I know what slotting does, and I know what cross drilled does, what do the dimples do?

    StopTech slotted rotors and their hybrid pads (code name for semi-metallic pads). I like them a lot. Cheaper then EBC. I plann on doing the StopTech slotted and cross drilled on the wifes 4r here soon.
